The Cactus Classic returns to the Phoenix area to the beautiful Pioneer Community Park which has 6 large fields with fence distances between 320 and 330+ feet!  The weather looks to be nice in the low 80's and the competition should be between OC Swats, Classic Glass, and upstart Bay Area Legends all from Californian.  And teams like Stars out of Colorado and the pesky 'C' teams Myautojack and Tunie Sports among others hope to play an upset role.  Although there is only 4 Conference teams the winner will get 180 points, 2nd 140, 3rd 120, and 4th 110.

There will be livestreaming on F3.  I (DW) will not be in attendance.

Here is the chat room link and the livestream link.

Oldscout Pollers going with Swats!

Looks like Swats has a Resmondo like 65% chance to win.

I wonder if TM55 knows they aren't playing for 3rd this weekend?
